The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) workshop on innovative options for financing the development and transfer of technologies was held from 27-29 September 2004, in Montreal, Canada. Attended by more than 60 representatives of governments, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations and the private sector, the workshop sought to create a better understanding of innovative financing for technology transfer under the Convention. The workshop also aimed to share experiences and information on good practices for financing technology transfer, and to catalyze innovate thinking on the issue, as well as to help narrow any differences that might exist.

The workshop included sessions focusing on the views and perspectives of the financial sector, current practices and lessons learned in development finance, and ongoing initiatives for innovative thinking. It concluded with a session assessing the workshop’s outcomes and possible ways to move forward. The discussions and outcomes of the workshop will be taken up by the UNFCCC’s Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and its Expert Group on Technology Transfer (EGTT) in December 2004 in Buenos Aires.
